  1. Oh. Well. That's a lot to take in. I can't say I really agree with him about any of that. I get that growing up in the church can definitely sway viewpoints, but 1) he's not getting the chance to {truly} be himself this way, so I don't think he can really be happy in life and 2) he isn't sending a great message to his young gay (or just LGBTQIA+) fans. It's a bit depressing and disappointing, honestly.
  2. Overall, I'm indifferent/leaning towards opposing it. There are missed opportunities, and it's definitely unfair if the contestant really really wanted a certain coach, but other than that, I don't really notice it all that often. I don't really find blocks to be "funny" or "entertaining", though.
  3. I go in with an open mind, so if I like a contestant I like a contestant. However, there are certain genres that have more snowflakes than other genres. So the 2nd poll option.
  4. Having not followed David Archuleta for a while now, I didn't really expect this! I was too young during that season of AI (I was ten or eleven, I think?) to know of any of the rumors surrounding his sexuality. Regardless, big props to him for letting the world know. And as someone who is asexual, I'm glad to see asexuality mentioned! Aphobia is still rampant and asexuality in general isn't super well-known to the general population. I know he didn't necessarily put labels to everything, and that's okay. Labels can change over time and I'm just really happy that he is growing to accept himself, because he deserves to live his best life. Sending much love, and will also start listening to some of his newer music!
  5. I've seen Owen Danoff live once. Really good performance and seemed down-to-earth when I had a brief conversation with him.
  6. I heard of the song "Honey Bee" and that was it. I hadn't really listened to his music, though.
  7. Savanna Chestnut - "Hold Me Now" by Thompson Twins What a refreshing rendition! I think I loved everything about this. A, but as close to an A+ as you can get. Lindsay Joan - "Nightmare" by Halsey Great vocal control and a nice version of the song and I can't ask for more, really. A Zania Alaké - "Sweet Love" by Anita Baker Honestly, there is not much I can say. She was excellent and extremely smooth. A Savanna Woods - "Zombie" by the Cranberries Really liked this one. She's got a cool tone and the delivery was pretty solid. A- Anna Grace - "my future" by Billie Eilish I enjoy her tone, but would like to hear a different song. Liked her take, though. B+ Rio Doyle - "When We Were Young" by Adele Sounds green, but her tone is really really interesting to me. She's got potential. B- Jordan Matthew Young - "I'm No Stranger to the Rain" by Keith Whitley His voice got better as the song went on, but for the most part, I just felt like the /shrug emoji. It was okay. C+ Rachel Mac - "Let Him Fly" by Patty Griffin My main issue was just that she sounded nervous. I'd like to hear more from her, though. C
  8. 1. Gihanna Zoe - honestly I just liked her voice, tone and delivery the most, even if I kept on thinking about Mercedes LOL. 2. Bradley Sinclair - his voice was probably the favorite of the night for me. I'm most likely to listen to a voice like his regularly. 3/4. Deion Warren - took "Shallow" and did some interesting stuff with it, even if he's not my cup of tea. 4/3. Connor Christian - dig that song choice! Would like to hear some more. 5. JD Casper - only at the bottom for shaky start, but he was alright. I didn't dislike anyone, so that's good!
  9. Halley Greg - Nelly Furtado's "I'm Like a Bird" Beautiful, unique take on a great song. Nothing more to say. A Ciana Pelekai - Tones and I's "Dance Monkey" Liked her, and the song's...okay. Would like to hear something else from her though. A- Durell Anthony - Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" I'm so tired of this song LOL. Sounded fresh with his voice, though. A- Avery Roberson - Tim McGraw's "If You're Reading This" Liked this a lot more than expected. It was pleasant and emotive. A- Ryleigh Modig - Billie Eilish's "when the party's over" Not a perfect delivery, but there's a solid foundation to work with. Wanna hear more. B+ Pia Renee - Stevie Wonder's "Master Blaster (Jammin)" Not bad, but some parts were shaky. B+ Andrew Marshall - John Mayer's "Gravity" This was pretty solid, not groundbreaking. Decent vocal control. B Jose Figueroa Jr. - Billy Vera & The Beaters' "At This Moment" This was exhausting to listen to. But he's clearly talented, just needs to reel it in. B- Emma Caroline - Kacey Musgraves' "Slow Burn" Her tone is super nice, but she was nervous and it showed. B-
  10. 1. Zae - without a doubt the best of the night, love that song choice and love his voice, that delivery was impeccable 2. Aaron - love the way his voice sounds, simple as that (I actually hate Ordinary World as a song but that's fine LOL) 3. Gean - sounds super unique, just not sure if I enjoy it yet but he did sound pretty great on that song 4. Carolina - beautiful at times, but I wanted it to be a little more understated to make the big moments stand out 5. Ethan - he wasn't bad at all, just didn't really stand out to me personally
  11. Best of the night Cam Raine Really solid Corey Victor Pete Dana Not too shabby Kenzie Devan Christine I didn't really think anyone was "bad" during the premiere, just some I liked more than others.
  12. I don't really care which coach they're with necessarily, but if the coach isn't known for, uh, coaching well or making good decisions then I might feel a bit nervous for the contestant's run just because I'm selfish and I want to hear more from them. However, if I really like them, I'll still follow their work post-the Voice anyway.
  13. Pls win 1. Desz - I enjoy listening to her immensely and really respect her vocal chops. She honestly has blown me away so many times this season. But if not you, then... 2. Carter - He's quite a solid contestant and I've enjoyed his performances too. I just prefer Desz over him, but wouldn't be mad if he won. Hm 3. John - I still don't know how to feel about his tone. Sometimes I'm feeling it, sometimes I'm not, but I'm definitely impressed. 4. Ian - Mumbly, but his singing makes me feel like coffee and campfire and nostalgia for a childhood that isn't mine. No thanks 5. Jim - I liked some of his previous performances, but after seeing what he's sounded like lately? Yeah, that's a no.
  14. It's not impossible, but I don't think it's necessarily likely. Country is not my genre of choice, and I tend to stan those who sing songs within my preferred genres, so usually I end up liking others more. Of course there are definitely country stars in the music industry today that I actively enjoy (see: Cam, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton) so I'm not ruling it out. There have been good country artists in the past (Lauren Duski) that have been part of my favorites for a particular season, but for the most part I just find country artists to either be actively bad or just "fine" (nice to listen to maybe but that's it) so they don't stand out to me for the most part. For me it's about that emotional connection too, and I just haven't felt that with any country artist enough to stan them.
  15. At least it wasn't Tanner or WTW? I gotta be fair, Bailey did well tonight, but ugh I'm gonna miss Payge
  16. I am having secondhand embarrassment at Kelly and Tanner...why...
